Singing star Susan Boyle this week said she is proud to have been asked to perform at this year’s Glamis Prom as her return to the Scottish stage after almost two years.
She performed seven dates in Scotland at the start of her first tour as a ‘thank you’ to her home country for its support after her phenomenal success on the television show ‘Britain’s Got Talent’.
She said: “As many of my ardent fans will know, I’m Scottish through and through. Over the past six years I have spoken frequently of my love of Scotland and in particular my home town of Blackburn.
“I adore Scotland and it’s one of the reasons I would never contemplate leaving my beloved home.”
Ms Boyle also said she is looking forward to duetting once more with West End and Broadway star Elaine Paige, who is headlining this year’s event.
And she added that performing in front of a home audience is like performing for no other, as she had received tremendous support on her previous Scottish dates.
She continued: “The rowdier and more vocal the better, as for an artist it spurs you on and makes you want to do the best performance ever for your fellow people.”
Both stars will be accompanied at the glittering event by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
